vice president joe biden. part of them will be some executive action. this is from our website, c- span.org. the president may also announced several executive orders which will take effect immediately to curb the violence. so, the assault weapons ban and those sorts of things need congressional approval. president obama will take some sort of executive action and we will talk about that later this morning. 11:45 a.m. eastern time as when we expect the president. look for our coverage. on coverage on the executive orders, do you support that idea by the president to do action on his own? we want to hear from you this morning. here is the arizona republic, courtesy of the newseum in washington. do you support executive action on gun-control -- on some gun- control measures? i want to know what you think about president obama using the executive order. this is from the washington post blog. the vast majority of actions he can take are relatively minor in nature, it says. it's unlikely obama can significantly alter gun lost through executive order. what is your take on this? stephan

law that expired in 2004. it was first initiated and passed by joe biden. he is the right person for the president to have appointed to come up with what we should do next. regulating assault weapons certainly falls within the bounds of the second amendment. so does everything else we are urging. this is not a constitutional question. it is a question of political courage. the supreme court -- the one that defines what the constitution means and says -- has ruled that reasonable regulations are consistent with the second amendment. when the gun lobby raises the second amendment, it is nothing but a red herring. it is time for second amendment defenders in congress to call them on it. the three measures i just mentioned, we will require leadership from both the president and members of congress. there are other steps that president obama can take without congressional approval. at any time he chooses, with just the stroke of a pen. vice president biden understands this, and we hope his recommendations will include at least these four steps we have urged. first, the president can o

. please have a seat. good afternoon, everybody. let me begin by thanking our vice president, joe biden, for your dedication, joe, to this issue, for bringing so many different voices to the table, because while reducing gun violence is a complicated challenge, protecting our children from harm shouldn't be a divisive one. over the month since the tragedy in newtown, we've heard from so many, and obviously none have affected us more than the families of those gorgeous children and their teachers and guardians who were lost, and so we're grateful for all of you taking the time to be here and recognizing that we honor their memories in part by doing everything we can to prevent this from happening again. we also heard from unexpected people. in particular, i started getting a lot of letters from kids. four of them are here today. graham, julia, kenny and taja. they're pretty represented of some of the messages that i got. these are some pretty smart letters from some pretty smart young people. henna, a third grader. you can go ahead and wave, henna. that's you. henna wrote, i feel terrible for

host: barbara perry, sonia sotomayor is wearing in joe biden and did yesterday. guest: i think that is an amazing landmark in american history. there have been other women on the supreme court, sandra day o'connor was the first woman, ruth bitter ginsberg, have both sworn in vice presidents but this is the first lady to swear in a president. given that has become an issue about the demographics of the country changing and the demographics were issued in this last race, i think it is tremendously symbolic. the fact that her memoir has just hit the shelves -- she had to have the early administration of the road yesterday morning because she had to hop on a train hopzoom, up to a bookstore in new york to talk about the book. her memoir is such an amazing american story of this puerto rico in a couple that come to new york and give birth to sonia sotomayor who lives in the projects and she rises to become a u.s. supreme court justice. as well as having served on the other two lower levels of the court system. order to administer the oath today, the formal vote that will be happening is tru
